And to keep all the stakeholders abreast with the latest changes, the Anti-Doping Agency Malaysia (Adamas) director Azura Abidin is encouraging all the relevant parties to take part in a webinar on Nov 3.
The webinar by WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) and Adamas will deal with the world body’s new code and anti-doping rules in 2021.
Azura said the session would equip the national sports associations to be hands on with the constant changes in the world of doping.
“This engagement is important for all sports stakeholders to be aware of the changes and to comply with it. We want Malaysia to be doping-free in local and international tournaments,” said Azura.
“This first session is for the administrators and we will have another one for the athletes, coaches and other support personnel on Nov 10.
“We want to instil the culture of clean sports and the spirit of ‘play true’ to all our athletes, coaches and other sports stakeholders,” she added.
The session on Nov 3 will be held from 9am-1pm via Facebook live (https://www.facebook.com/adamas.my) and all interested participants are encouraged to register at the links in the Adamas facebook and website.
Despite all the efforts taken by Adamas, early this year, sprinter Mohd Syazrul Adli Saiful Adli from Penang was banned four years for doping, after taking supplements that he said were given to him by a friend.
The Tunku Mahkota Ismail Sports School (SSTMI) student tested positive for methasterone and oxymetholone, both of which are banned by WADA.
